20 Guest Bedroom (all en-suite) Hotel located in St Ives. Stunning views of St Ives Bay. Comes fully fitted and with 3 bedroom owners accommodation. Set in 0.6 acres. Potential for development.

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful 20 bedroom hotel which is located in the holiday town of St Ives, Cornwall. The property was transformed into a hotel 56 years ago and has been in the careful hands of the current owner for the past 21 years. The business is now being offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. The hotel sits in just under (0.6) of an acre and is presented to a high standard. Since ownership they have continually refurbished and invested in new equipment along with fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The St Merryn Hotel is owner operated with the help of 4 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £169,802. The hotel is currently and has been for many years run as a highly successful coaching hotel and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade for coach operators. All bedrooms come with TVs and complimentary tea & coffee making facilities. We believe that there is an opportunity to run the hotel as a successful business for private guests offering B&B with evening meals for both guests and non residents. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade from visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a business that has already benefited from significant investment which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed. The property is in a prime location and could be of interest for development with the correct planning applications in place.
